Punjab Minister

Lahore According to Punjab Minister of Primary and Secondary Health Care, Dr. Jamal Nasir, 300 basic health centers in Punjab’s rural and underserved areas now offer 24-hour medical care, and more doctors and staff have also been deployed on the Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi’s orders. Additionally, 300 ultrasound machines have been provided by the interim administration in these basic care facilities. In addition to providing care for regular patients, this facility also has maternity services for expectant mothers and infant care.

Children at these basic health centers also receive free vaccinations. People in underdeveloped areas will now have access to high-quality healthcare thanks to this effort. The burden of patients on hospitals in large cities will be lessened by the provision of high-quality treatment facilities in primary health centers. Dr. Jamal Nasir, the minister of primary and secondary health care, said. The doctors will be made specialists in the district headquarters hospitals of Attock, Bhakkar, Mandi Bahauddin, and Jhang, according to him, since the government has decided to place them in the backward areas’ district headquarters hospitals.

With the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan, an MoU has been inked for this purpose. People in underdeveloped areas would also have access to the services of regional specialists in medicine. The relevant personnel attended a review meeting of the Health Department, which was presided over by Minister of Primary and Secondary Health Care Dr. Jamal Nasir.
